How long can an FT817 operate with 8 x AA NiMH batteries?

I normally use external batteries with my FT817.

Those supplied in the Yaesu battery pack were only 600 mAH.

And even those in the FT818's pack have a bit more capacity but not quite enough.

Anyway the video here documents my experiences with 8 NIMH batteries purchased from IKEA.

They're low self discharge rechargeables.
